Abstract


This study investigated the extent of the implementation of standard specifications on secondary schools facilities in Etsako West Local Government Area, Edo State. It was a descriptive survey. A sample of 135 teachers emerged from a population of 432 through stratified random representation. A 2-part, 18-item, 4-point scale instrument known as standard specification questionnaire (SSQ) was used to collect data for answering 2 research questions. SSQ was validated by a team of experts. Test-retest reliability was established at an r-0.85. Findings revealed among others that lack of funds posed a major problem in the implementation of standard specification on secondary schools’ facilities on public/rural schools. It was concluded that if education is well funded, enough specified facilities provided, it will go a long way in breeding intellectuals who are morally, culturally, socially, and intellectually balanced to give society the necessary level of economic development. It was recommended among others that classrooms must be spacious enough to promote adequate interdisciplinary learning.
